Waltzing With Bears

My Uncle Walter goes waltzing with bears,
It's a most unbearable state of affairs,
Every Saturday night, he creeps down the stairs,
Goes out the back door and goes waltzing with bears.
He goes wa-wa-wa-wa-wa-waltzing with bears
Raggy bears, baggy bears, shaggy bears, too.
And there's nothing on earth that Uncle Walter won't do
So he can go waltzing, wa-wa-wa-waltzing,
He can go waltzing, go waltzing with bears-bears.
Well, I went to his room in the middle of the night,
I tiptoed inside and turned on the light,
To my dismay, he was nowhere in sight,
And I'm sure Uncle Walter was waltzing that night.
Well, we bought Uncle Walter a new coat to wear,
But when he comes home it's all covered with hairs,
And lately we've noticed, there's several new tears,
And we're sure Uncle Walter's been waltzing with bears.
Now we told Uncle Walter that he should be good,
And do all the things that we say that he should,
But we know that he'd rather be off in the wood,
And we're afraid that we'll lose him, we'll lose him for good.
Well, we've begged and we've pleaded with Uncle Walter to stay,
And we've managed to keep him inside for a day,
But the bears all marched in and they took him away,
Now he's dancing with pandas and we don't understand it
But the bears all demand at least one waltz a day.
